    "I love the parent involvement and how great the teachers are. The school is tucked in nicely in the neighborhood, making it a small populated school, and huge advantage to the students! I really wish there can be a way for us to help fund the school by committing to a certain amount every year, instead of getting solicited almost every week. But hey I guess this happens in every school in CA! Still a great school!"

    "My daughter has been enrolled since 1st grade. The teachers she had so far are excellent (Sherry Skari for 1st and Laura Boushell for 2nd). I love that it's a smaller school size compared to other local schools in the area. Parents are continually encouraged to be involved, and I really see that a lot of parents ARE involved. PTA is strong! (sometimes too strong). Principal Sandra Skora seems to be very involved and approachable. I haven't had the privilege of talking one-on-one with her, but so far I have no complaints about her. Front desk people I think can be friendlier. (or maybe they just need more time off, God bless them they work hard). Overall, an awesome neighhorhood school!!"

    "My daughters home school is Victor elementary, For Transitional Kindergarten Towers was the school she has to go to. After careful consideration I came to the conclusion that this school did not meet the needs of my child, She is in special education. So The next step for me was to find a way to get her into a diffrent school, I called towers elementary and spoke with a female clerk and expressed why I wanted information about what options are available for me to get her into a diffrent TK. She took down my name and number and proceeded to say she would call me back with information. I than recieve a phone call from my childs current school principle stating that the principle of Towers had called and said the Clerk had expressed that I was rude and saying the school was basically s**t, This outraged me. Am I not allowed to do whats best for my child? I did nothing rude but say that I don't want my child going there, Take it how you want. But its my girls future not theirs and not mine. They almost went on to say they wouldn't accept her due to my rudeness, Which is ILLEGAL BTW. Anyways this school and staff obviously is poor and the lack of suspervision makes it worst. bwr"

    "I have two kids at Towers, and we have had a great experience so far. The principal is responsive and listens to parent's concerns. The only thing I don't like about the school is the super large playground/field and lack of enough supervision. The cafeteria is also over-crowded. I know many kids who have gotten hurt on the playground (the sand) because nobody is stationed there to watch them. They also put the kindergartners with the bigger kids during recess and lunch. If these things could be addressed, it would be an even greater school. The parent involvement is fantastic."
